Public and Members-Only Communities

FTA operates a number of e-lists for the benefit of members and select public groups.  All e-lists are moderated for appropriate use.  e-Lists are designed to allow for the communication and proliferation of best practices and knowledge among tax administration staff within defined subject areas.

FTA provides member-only e-lists on the following topics (public e-lists are indicated below).  The email address of the e-list is the list’s name @lists.taxadmin.org.  Full email addresses are listed below.

Contribute to the knowledge of others!

We hope that you will employ these lists as resources to answer your own questions about issues within other states, and contribute to the knowledge of others by participating freely in responding to questions from others. If list or message flow becomes too unwieldy, we’ll consider creating additional e-lists in the future.

Please note: e-Lists should not be used to exchange sensitive taxpayer information.

FTA (and the entire tax administration community) appreciates your participation. Please use this resource, as all will benefit!

Frequently Asked Questions

It will be very helpful to everyone if you (1) make your subject line as descriptive as possible; and (2) remember to include your name and agency at the end of the message. Otherwise, in some e-mail systems, it can be nearly impossible to figure out who sent the message. (Phone numbers are also helpful).

If you need assistance, please send a message to support@taxadmin.org for assistance.

If you need to send a personal e-mail to an individual on an e-list whose address you don’t have, send a message to support@taxadmin.org for assistance.
